My first Kölsch. 12oz bottle, best when consumed by 09/25/06. Pours a hazy straw with a moderate white head. Aroma of hay and wheat, some pepper as well. Lemony up front, biscuity finish. Don’t really know what to compare this to, but it is a refreshing summer brew for a hot day. notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Well-made summer beers are really a hard thing to come by, but this is one of them - nice, crisp fruity presence and enough pleasant malts to keep the tongue interested - finishes clean, but leaves an impression of hops. Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 7, 2006
A yellow appearance with a moderate white head. Not much going on with this beer. Standard issue stuff with a hint of lemons and hay. Good for hot day of drinking and not thinking sessions. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Very clear with slight white head. No noticable aroma. Tastes like lemon flavored water with a dash of beer in it. Fuck this shit. This needs to taste more like beer already. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - APR 14, 2006
Light nose, yellow color, fizzy head. Starts soft, light citrus malt, then a big broad hop bitter. Very un-Kölsch-like. Not a Kölsch at all. Far too bitter. But stil a decent brew.

Bottled: Light golden color,small head, little carbonation. Hoppy hay nose. Too bitter for a Kölsch - Light "I’m in Cologne-Kölsch" -taste in the beginning - but than - BAM - Hops a gogo and you are in Chicago! oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Pours a golden yellow/amber. Aromas of lemon, grains, celery. Flavor is crisp, dry, sweet malt, and a mild hop. zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 10, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 Re-rated-refreshing with a smidge of bitterness. Spalt hop flavor with a little yeast. tlitt2 (58) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2005
My first Kolsch. Faint fruity aroma. Nice creamy white head, small. A spicey, faintly hop flavor. Nice acidity. Not much flavor, but very refreshing. Could drink this like Gatorade. RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Had this on tap at Crescent Moon in Omaha.
Pale gold color with almost no head. Smell is mildly citrus and sweetwith just a light hoppiness. Flavor of malt, hop, lemon and spices. Overall taste was very mild. Was very easy to drink, but not something I’ll seek out again.
